During a period of time close to four years, 239 children with regional lymphadenopathy following BCG vaccination have been treated. Early neonatal vaccination, individual sensitivity and possible mistakes in the dose of vaccine administered may all influence the development of pathological regional lymphadenopathy. In advanced cases, surgery is proposed as the most effective treatment for a rapid recovery. No cases of recurrence or fistulization appeared in our series.
